Built in 1903, the Pottawatomie County Museum in Shawnee is made of limestone blocks two to three feet thick and assembled in the Romanesque revival style. Formerly known as the Santa Fe Depot Museum, the building's floor plan is based on the style of early European churches with a tower resembling a Scottish lighthouse that rises up from the east side of a multi-arched portico. The beautiful ceilings of the depot are made of stained boxcar siding. The structure was put on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1974. In 1977, it was traded to the city of Shawnee and opened as a museum in 1982. The depot is also home to the Historical Society of Pottawatomie County. Museum houses local exhibits and artifacts. Educational programs available.
